Welcome The Bald Eagles Back To Hideaway Harbor Park Feb. 8

Join the St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department for the annual Bald Eagle Winter Watch program, from 9 a.m. – 1p.m., on Saturday, Feb. 8, at Hideaway Harbor Park, 1550 Hideaway Harbor Dr., in Portage des Sioux, 63373, to view live eagles and learn why these majestic birds return every winter. To celebrate the arrival of our national icon to the area, the parks department is offering several birding activities for the public to participate in while visiting. From 9:30 – 11: 30 a.m., get an up close and personal look at an American bald eagle presented by the World Bird Sanctuary. Through high-powered telescopes, provided by the Astronomical Society of Eastern Missouri (ASEM), spectators will get a chance to view eagles nesting in the trees, in flight, and feeding off the open Mississippi River waters. Park staff will also offer educational eagle presentations and park history tours at the top of every hour, beginning at 9 a.m. through noon. Children will also enjoy assisting staff with building a life-size eagles nest – perfect for photos! A fire ring and hot cocoa will be offered to combat the winter chill. Contact the parks department at 636.949.7535 or visit www.stccparks.org
